GEODE, Iowa – The beach and surrounding facilities at Geode State Park will be closed for the 2023 recreational season beginning in late April due to a major road and parking lot construction project.

“In addition to the beach being closed, the road to the beach, the trail from the beach to the campground, beach shelters and beach restrooms will also be closed,” said Geode State Park manager Ulf Konig. The trail around the lake will remain open.

“We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we improve the overall experience and accessibility to the beach and its facilities,” Konig said.

The construction project is expected to be completed by September. For more information about Geode State Park, visit call the park office at (319) 392-4601.
